We often find ourselves wondering, “why spend $5,000 on the season’s latest “It” bag when there’s probably a knockoff  that’s just as good?” Of course the obvious answer is because you want to support designers who innovate and create products women clamor for. People should be rewarded for their work, right?

In theory, that’s how we feel too, but when presented with a designer “It” bag that retails for $1,000+ or a nearly identical knock-off that’s a fraction of the price, the decision gets a little harder. If there’s no way in hell you’ll ever be able to afford the original, is there really any harm in getting a knock-off? Especially when you can get a really good one for like $20.

Still saying no way to knock-offs? Maybe after you take a look at these popular handbags from designers like CHANEL, Celine and Alexander Wang and then see their best copies, you’ll change your tune. Click through the slideshow to peep the best “It” bag knock-offs out there.
